Wabi Sabi Sketchbooks: lay-flat with recycled cotton paper

Size Guide
Eco-friendly and beautifully tactile, these books lie completely flat and can also be turned a full 360 degrees.

These unadorned, coverless books feature exposed spine stitching in linen thread and a linen ribbon to tie them closed. Available in three sizes, each Wabi Sabi book has 64 pages of 210gsm handmade recycled cotton rag paper.

The pages are acid-free, internally and surface-sized so they're ideal for watercolour, painting and drawing. The binding style allows for expansion in the thickness of the book as you add mixed media, collage, cuttings, etc.

These books would also make lovely Wedding Guest Books or Scrapbooks.
